Best advice for stopping a dog pulling is never ever let them make progress while pulling on the lead,it takes some time and patience but it will become a learnt behaviour not to pull with time. It is harder with highly driven dogs but it is possible.ย

I can think of one or two so called trainer's that should wear one of those especially those that pick their dog's up by the ear's.ย 

Like you say, anyone that needs to pick a dog up by the ears isn't fit to refer to themselves as a trainer.ย

That said heโ€™s improving leaps and bounds and weโ€™re really starting to get there with the focus heelwork ๐Ÿ˜Š

Don't beat yourself up, it's something that takes time and patience and often depends on the dog, it sounds like he certainly doesn't lack drive. But given a bit of time, if he learns that unless he stays by your side he won't take a single step forwards, ever and that's what I've found ultimately works.ย

I am in Africa just now and there are 4 of these released into the grounds every night. Terrifying. Fortunately they are OK with me.ย ๐Ÿ˜Š

In welcome near Koonstad. The dogs are to deter farm murders. The owner had his son killed in a break in. Daughter in law killed one on top of her with a derringer. It's a lawless country but hunting is good.

They have Boerboels out there, some seriously powerful dogs to.ย

It was his reward for outing - do you think itโ€™s a bad idea?

Seems to work - I get the long line may tangle โ€ฆ

I usually get rid of the long line before rewarding for play, it's unlikely but I have seen an injury or two from a leg getting tangled, also goes without saying to be very careful with a long line if near traffic. Fantastic photo though ๐Ÿ‘
